Editorial Reviews

Review

Beautifully written and enviably imaginative, Soul Warrior proves an exemplary example of Fantasy Fiction. Definitely deserving of your attention it is recommended without reservation! ~ Book Viral
Another excellent element of this book is not simply judging people by their first appearance, whether they are demons or not, or the colour of their souls (in this book we have blue - aszura, red - demon and green - human souls among others). 
This book is vastly different from most of the books I've read before, running with a mythology that rarely gets much attention in the genre. It has a huge cast of fascinating characters, a deep and rich world and definitely something I'm interested in following." ~ 4 Fangs from Fangs For The Fantasy blog
"Will I recommend this book? Oh yes. And be assured you will grab the next one too." ~ Global Asian Times.
"The vibrant characters in the multi-hued setting are the stuff superhero animation films are made of. Soul Warrior engrosses and enthralls. A thumping good read." ~ Of Prose and Poetry Blog

This book transports you to a fully formed other reality. It draws on an ancient Indian epic and South Asian mythology, something I knew nothing about before reading this book. The information is interwoven in such a way to enrich everything, adding interest and not confusion. I found myself wanting to learn more about the Mahabharatra as well as wanting the story to continue. And while the story draws on the old, it is very much set in modern times complete with electronics and relatable characters. The story has danger, suspense, humor, romance, everything! Falguni Kothari's writing is a pleasure to read with creative turns of phrases that paint such colorful pictures. I am looking forward to reading the next one in this series!

Ms. Kothari is a talented writer. Her writing is beautiful, lyrical and full of surprises. I enjoy her complex, well thought out characters and the vivid pictures she paints on the page. I can't wait to read more from her.

The Mahabharata ...continues...

Are there any mytho lovers out there who have not thought what it would be like if our mythological characters had lived in today’s world? Would Draupadi tolerate her husbands’ gambling her away? Would Sita quietly let the earth swallow her up? Our western counterparts like Rick Riordon and Dan Brown have opened a Pandora's Box and let the imagination run wild. And now wild it runs.

Soul Warrior...
Proves that mythology need not be limited to only folklores but can be woven around our modern lifestyle. Personally, I have always been fascinated by Lord Karna's story.

A misguided sacrifice, a wasted honor and a man of supreme talent, all gone wrong with a choice he made in life. A life that was already cursed even before he was born. So when Ms.Kothari made him the central character of her saga - Soul Warrior- the age of Kali, I had to read it. ​
The Story...

Karna is sent back to earth by Lord Yama after he dies in the battle of Kurukshetra. His duty (read power) was to catch the demonic souls of the asuras (red souls). He was doing a fab job for 7k years till his lost love does not bring back into his life an emotion he had thought he had completely lost. His yearning for a family. A daughter he never knew of comes under his protection along with those of his nemeses’- the Pandavas. While the other four girls are endowed with godly powers, his own daughter has nothing to boast of. Ms. Kothari takes the readers into a journey of self realisation, re-discovering love and a beautiful bond that forms between the characters of this novel. Oh, lets not forget that moment between Ash and Draupadi- when one must forgive and move on with life.
Ash?

Disclaimer: I received a MOBI version of this book from the author via The Book Club in return for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for the same.

I have been asked this question in a couple of interviews and a few times on social media: “a book that I wished I had written?” I had a vague answer each time, for the sake of it if you know what I mean. Now I have a definite one. I wish I had written Soul Warrior. That’s how much I loved the book.

When I got to know that this book was a story on Karna, I immediately signed up for the review. It’s only recently that I have been introduced to the genre mythical fiction. I found out that Soul Warrior Book 1: The Age of Kali falls under Mythic Fantasy – a book that draws inspiration from mythology, but is set in present times. Uh, oh! It made me wonder if I wanted to read this one after reading 1-2 pages.

There was another reason for this. I had read Magnus Chase & The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan just a couple of weeks ago and I hadn’t been awfully enamoured. That was more because the book targeted young adults.

Gritting my teeth, I plunged into Falguni Kothari’s latest book and fell in love. I have read Bootie and the Beast by the same author (I had won this during #TornadoGiveaway 2) and thought it okay. But Soul Warrior is something else.

Be prepared for spoilers from here on...

The main character, the Soul Warrior is Karna from The Mahabharata. His modern avatar is all set to make women readers drool. I am fascinated with how the author has brought the epic characters to life in the 21st century, combining the right people. For example: Lavya & Ash. Hi5!

Plot:- Interesting, refreshing and riveting. A prophecy, a secret child and the need to save the Cosmos from doom form the basis of the first book of a series planned by the author on ‘the age of Kali.’ The reader is taken on a virtual tour of the cosmic realm where demons, celestials and humans wage war with sophisticated weapons, Karna the Soul Warrior keeps tab on the movement of all who threaten the Human realm with the help of Eklavya alias Lavya and his highly advanced technical gadgets, and souls often communicate with each other via telepathy. Karna, Draupadi and her daughters are seen flaunting designer wear, jeans, tanktop, etc. and don’t mind taking a bite of pizza to satiate their hunger. Ashwathama aka Ash is no longer a warrior but a Healer whose hands come forward to soothe the ailing and Yama, the God of Death loves partying. In short, ‘Soul Warrior’ is a confluence of myth and contemporary.

There is love, hate, deceit, rebellion, mysticism and suspense within the covers. If one is looking for pure myth as retold by our ancestors, then they are in for a shock. Why? The author has let loose her imagination and has twisted the myths to put forth something new, something refreshing. Each line of the book is a veritable treat to the senses. One can actually visualize the characters, their moods, their actions, the battle, the banter and moments of romance and passion.

The book presents Karna and Draupadi in different light. I couldn’t help but marvel at the immense potential our myths hold. They are so open to various interpretations that they give the creative a chance to explore them and also help their imagination run free and yarn new stories. They bring out the best in those who are ready to experiment with them, they who find a muse in them.
